Exclusive podcast: Moving walls and Armadillos - How does Olson Kundig Architects use Revit?

Over the past months, WAN has undertaken a series of interviews with architects, designers, engineers and manufacturers around the world to discover how different industry professionals are utilising Autodesk software in the design of their building projects. This week, Michael Hammond spoke to Les Eerkes, principal at Olson Kundig Architects about the practice’s use of Building Information Modelling (BIM).

In this exclusive podcast interview, Eerkes explains the practice’s relationship with Autodesk and the ways in which the technology has aided the prefabrication of parts on projects such as Carraig Ridge Passive House, a highly sustainable residential project which has been stalled due to funding, and the Charles Smith Wines Tasting Room and World Headquarters which was realised in 2011.
